Re: What can I cook in a cast iron pot?
That is perfect for stovetop or in the oven. Did it come with insturctions on what temperatures it can withstand in the oven? Be sure to look the care pamphlet over or go to their webpage for ideas. I bet depending on the brand their webpage will have recipes.
The options are endless, but I tend to use my cast iron low and slow. I do not tend to boil things in cast iron, just simmering and such. You also don't want to submerge it in hot water when it's hot, it will crack. And, I don't think they are dishwasher safe or metal utensil safe, use silicon spatulas or wooden spoons so you don't scratch the enamel. A nylon srubbie for cleaning in the sink with hot soapy water is all it will probably need.
Check pioneer woman for some good soup, chili, beans recipes, she makes easy to follow yummy recipes and she cracks me up too.
